Umbrella strollers are fabulous, except for their sometimes lack of storage. We chose the Bugaboo stroller for Peep and will continue to use it for Teapot since we loved it. But it’s not always the most convenient to travel with (especially via plane), so we also have a Chicco Umbrella Stroller which came in handy quite often. The thing I found most frustrating about the umbrella stroller, was there was no place to put stuff. The storage below could really only fit a few things, and if you hung too much on the sides, it became very tippy. There are lots … Continue reading
The little red wagon is a quintessential childhood mode of transportation. However, they’re really huge to have in your house and store when not in use. But did you know that there are folding red wagons? The one in the pictures is from Easy Go Wagons. When open, it’s main compartment dimensions are 33 X 17 X 10″ (LxWxD) but when it’s folded up, it shrinks down to 32 X 24 X 11″ (LxWxD). It is on the heavy side – 30 lbs so if you live where you will need to haul it up stairs, it may be difficult. … Continue reading
I will admit that I have not seen this in person…but I WANT TO!!! The Quinny Yezz was designed for city living. This is a lightweight, fold-able, cool looking stroller. Some pros that I’ve come across: Light – only 11lbs total Folded, it is 27 x 10.6 x 9.3 inches Stands alone when folded – so you can “set it and forget it” (I’m pretty sure that phrase should have a ™) First stroller made entirely out of IXEF® which is a high performance plastic Skating wheels allows for easy maneuverability A literal rainbow of color choice – Gray, Blue, Red, … Continue reading
I kind of stalked a mom yesterday as she was leaving the library. Stalk is a bit harsh, but I did hasten my walk so that I could catch up at the street crossing and check out the brand of stroller she was pushing. It’s a Micralite Fastfold Super-Lite and it’s really cool looking! It has a very triangular seat and a big basket below for storage. The canopies come in basic black, gray, red, blue and yellow. Best of all, it is only 14lbs and can be maneuvered with just one hand! The Micralite company is located in the UK … Continue reading
Leave it to City-Moms to create usable products. I love this storage unit called StollAway from MetroTots. The history of how Mary Ann Schwanewede came up with it: “Without thinking much of it she trekked to the baby gear store and asked for ‘a hook to store my folded stroller’ . The salesman looked at her blankly and said no such thing existed. She found this hard to believe; she couldn’t be the only one in this city of 8 million, many of whom are parents, to have this problem. Everywhere she looked in her downtown neighborhood she saw a parade of … Continue reading
As I mentioned in a post about Peep’s crib my husband I had made the decision to purchase fewer, more expensive items that we loved instead of many things we only sort of liked. This was how we ended up with the Bugaboo Cameleon. The Bugaboo company was founded in 1999 headquartered in Amsterdam and brought to the US in 2003. I didn’t start seeing them until just before I got pregnant at the end of 2006. Today’s strollers as we know them did not exist. (It’s hard to believe how far strollers have come in 4-5 years.) The Bugaboo was cool, modern, techy, expensive … Continue reading
